  1. Winter Olympics Concept Series - BONUS: Flagstaff 2030

    Thanks you guys! @FightingGoldenDevil I don’t have plans for them right now in this project, but I did make a Twin Cities logo for a Summer Olympics project I did a while back! I’ll see if I can dig it up and show you! In the meantime, let’s do the bonus round! To my knowledge, Flagstaff, Arizona has never come close to a bid for the Winter Olympics, but I think they’d make for an interesting candidate if they ever went for it. Unlike literally everywhere else in Arizona, Flagstaff has full winters and is one of the snowiest cities in America with about 100 in. of snowfall a year. It also is the nearest city to the Arizona Snowbowl, one of Arizona’s premier ski areas. It would take building some venues and lots of prep work to do it, but I think if they were ever serious about it, they could potentially pull it off at some point. Maybe not in time for 2030, but some time. I put them as a bonus in the 2030 slot because I wasn’t sure when the US would likely get the Olympics again, but really wanted to do a Flagstaff concept anyways, so here we are - The “What-If” Flagstaff 2030 Olympics! The logo is a snowflake designed with homages to the Arizona state flag. The top five points are based on the rays from the top section of the flag, and the bottom five points are filled in navy blue based on the solid bottom of the flag. I went with Coolvetica for the wordmark because I thought the font looked both modern and “resort-ish”. I think of all the concepts in this series, I had the most fun making this one. But let me know what you guys think!
  2. Winter Olympics Concept Series - BONUS: Flagstaff 2030

    Well let’s move right along! Up next is 2030, which I think has a good shot to be Salt Lake City. Maybe some homerism there, but the good use of many existing venues and a lower cost gives SLC a really good chance. So, here goes! Another logo based on simplicity, Salt Lake 2030 features a modern, cool (as in temperature) take on the Wasatch Range with its reflection upon the Great Salt Lake. I wanted something markedly different from the ‘02 snowflake, so I thought the mountain reflection would make for a nice route. Being a Utahan, I felt some pressure in “getting this right”; I like where this went and am happy with it myself. But let me know what you think! Bonus 2030 concept coming up next!
  3. Winter Olympics Concept Series - BONUS: Flagstaff 2030

    Thank you! Yeah I think Sion has a really good chance if their plan is to use existing venues. Lots of problems avoided there. And Torino would be good to host again too! We’ll see if they ever throw their hat in the ring anytime soon. Any other comments before we move ahead?
  4. I’ve been in the Olympic spirit big time lately, and I’ve decided to take on a series where I’ll pick the host from 2026 on and design logos accordingly. I’m not sure how far out I’ll go yet, but we’ll see as I go! Each case is my best guess based on who’s been in the running for games and who I think has a good shot to get the games in a certain year. It’s not meant to be taken too seriously, I’m just having fun dreaming up what logos in different cities could look like. As you’ll see, there is one exception coming up where I’ll post a “bonus” concept for 2030, where a city that’s never been in the running (to my knowledge) but that I think would make for an interesting candidate will get a concept. Anyways, let’s start it off! First up is 2026, which I pick to be Sion, Switzerland: The logo is a simple one, based off of the city’s coat of arms with snowflakes instead of stars. It’s meant to be simple, effective, straight to the point, and representative of the city. Here’s the coat of arms for reference: Let me know what you think! Plenty more to come!

    Super stoked that Donovan won! It was an all around great contest too. Lots of fun.
  6. PyeongChang 2018

    Grenoble did that in ‘68 too, right? Thats the only other one I can think of off the top of my head that was torn down right after (if I’m remembering correctly).
  7. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    The Jazz have really figured something out. 10 straight wins! They might make a playoff run after all. Oh, and that Crowder deal is looking pretty good right now.
  8. Japan and Korea World Cup Kits

    Thanks for the comments! Good stuff to know. I’ll work on those things. Any other comments?
  9. Japan and Korea World Cup Kits

    Hello all! I had some ideas brewing in my head and decided to get them out. Here's my ideas for World Cup kits for Japan and Korea. Japan - The primary kit is a more purplish blue with silver and pinkish red accents*, and the front number is encased on a subliminated sun. The secondary kit is a white-to-black gradient with the number inside the red sun from the flag. I went with just the crest on both kits instead of the usual flag-and-crest combo the team normally uses, because I thought it looked a little less cluttered. Korea - I wanted to keep the "Red Devils" primarily red, but draw some inspiration from the flag also, hence the yin-yang inspired design. The secondary kit draws inspiration from the flag also in the way the colors are used; accented with blue and red with a curvy mini-sash, I made the numbers black to use all the colors of the flag. The third kit is a black set with red and blue accents that I felt made for a good alternative for Korea. Let me know what you think! *EDIT: The pinkish Red looks more reddish on mobile than on desktop for some reason
  10. Atlanta Falcons Logo Concept

    This is what they should’ve done from the get-go. Great update!
  11. I did a thing, y'all!

    Oh that’s nice. Really good job!
  12. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    I think things will turn out okay. After thinking about it since yesterday, I think Crowder is actually a pretty decent pickup who I believe will do much better in our system than in Cleveland. Snyder will utilize him better and I think in that case he has the potential to do what he did in Boston again, which would be great. Plus, the team is clicking well right now and shows signs that they can be great after all. Sure we’ll miss Hood and Johnson, but when Burks and O’Neale are on, they produce fairly well and could make up for that in Hood’s absence. Even if they don’t make the playoffs this year, I’m optimistic that they can next year and keep improving.
  13. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    I expected Hood and Johnson to be gone, so I’m not surprised. What I am surprised about though is that Rose and Crowder were the haul. Not in a bad or good way, just sort of “huh” about it. I’m optimistic that Quin Snyder can maximize their talent* like he’s so good at doing. Maybe that’s what Dennis Lindsey thought too, I don’t know. We’ll see how this turns out. I should note that in the case of Crowder, I was REALLY hoping the Jazz could’ve landed him last off-season so there’s that. *In the case of Rose, at least as much as Snyder can maximize with whatever’s left in the tank and when he’s ever on the court. EDIT: Looks like Rose isn’t staying, so..
